Execute(string)

Description

Execute executes an expression or file as if it were code substituted in the program. The required parameter, string, can be either a string expression or the name of a file containing statements that is executed. If multiple statements are to be executed, separate them with a carriage return (vbCRLF). The code can access and modify all variables in the current running program.

The code in the string is evaluated as JavaScript code. See the TechNote 04, "The role of JavaScript, HTML5 and WebKit".
